Preferred regions Industrial regions[1]
Transforms into Toa of Iron

The Fe-Matoran are the Matoran of Iron.

Abilities and Traits

All Fe-Matoran have inactive Iron powers which are activated upon becoming Toa. They do, however, possess a very minuscule amount of Elemental Iron energy, to the extent that they have more physical endurance than other types of Matoran.

One known job of the Fe-Matoran is weapon making. The Nynrah Ghosts, highly praised weapon smiths, are all Fe-Matoran. Due to their skill with metalworking, Nynrah Ghosts and other Fe-Matoran are typically found in industrialized areas such as Xia, especially in places where metals can be mined.[1]

Physical attributes of Fe-Matoran include gray, metallic gray, gold, bronze,[1] and burnt orange[OGDi] armor. Like many Matoran types, their armor colors vary by region. They are also one of the several male Matoran types.[OGQ]
